    Crap. Haven't been outside yet...

    I'm okay with it though -- it's been an amazing summer weather-wise. Can't complain.

    It's not TOO bad today - not great, but it definitely could be worse. Not as beautiful as yesterday, though...

    Yesterday was amazing. Had a softball tourney out near Greenbelt yesterday morning, and it was actually chilly. As in, I needed a jacket. In the middle of August.
